Dyno Wideband Upgrade

With the LSM11 wideband sensors becoming quite costly and very outdated compared to the latest Bosch LSU 4.9 sensors, I decided to replace the factory Dyno Dynamics (Autronic) wideband with an ALM-LED that has both analog and serial output (along with a couple of inputs if required).

As such with a bit of digging and tracing the wires, the below information might come in handy for some one else looking to do the same. I simply made up a male DB9 connector to match the existing autronic cable from the dyno. I originally planned to replace the round connector at the dyno controller, but after ordering the wrong “AMP” connector size I went with the DB9 connector instead.

Original Autronic Wideband Connector Wiring:
Cable Colour – DB9 PIN # – Round Connector Pin # – Usage

Green – Pin 1,2 DB9 – Pin 1 – Power Ground

Brown – Pin 4 DB9 – Pin 4 – Sensor Ground

Red – Pin 5 DB9 – Pin 5 – 0-5V from Wideband to Dyno

Yellow – Pin 8 DB9 – Pin 8 – 0-1V output

White – Pin 6/7 DB9 – Pin 6 – 16v Supply from Dyno

Dyno software will either need to modified to suite a 10-20afr range if that’s what your wideband uses by default or you need to program your widebands analog output to the standard 10-30 afr range the Autronic uses.
